Used wrong charger -- possible overload of my camera, battery or charger?
My error... but I plugged the wrong charger into my Casio EX-600 USB/charger cradle (the one from my portable DVD player - which is 9v output instead of 5.3v). The LCD on the camera went white for a moment, and now nothing is responding at all.
I am hoping that there is overload protection (like power surges, etc) - like some sort of a fuse in the camera itself, or the charger or perhaps the battery.
Any guidance? I am hoping that replacing some fuse might work, or even replacing the battery and/or charger (less expensive than the camera as a whole).
Re: Used wrong charger -- possible overload of my camera,...
CORRECTION and RESOLUTION -- turns out it wasn't the wrong charger (the other one won't even fit), but instead must have been some other overload of charger, battery or camera. There is apparently no way to reset the camera other than through the menu (must turn camera on -- according to Casio support). Short story is that it needs to be sent in for repair. Trying to find receipt, but should be under warranty.

No. The EX-Z60 does not charge the battery through the USB port. You need to use the supplied charger. Alternatively, if you have the EX-Z60DX cradle, you can plug the camera into the cradle and plug the cradle into a wall outlet. However, using the cradle will not let you charge the camera through the USB port either.
I think, Charger is out of order and battery used all its charge, now charger is not functioning, so battery is not being charged. I mean no power from either side to camera.
Try to use another charger to charge battery.
Try reinstalling your camera drivers. You need to uninstall it first while docking station is removed. Then reinstall your camera software through the cd that comes with it then try plugging it in again either on the same usb slot or a different usb slot. Then try docking the camera again if theirs any interruptions. Usually if you transfer the docking stations usb cord plug to a different usb slot, the transfer goes haywire. Try transferring to a different usb slot...
If all else fails, get a card reader for your cameras memory card, it is way faster...
I've seen a lot of Casio chargers go bad, not charge the battery, and then this is what happens. I've been using an aftermarket charger and battery I got off eBay, and they work great. I've even used the aftermarket charger to "revive" batteries that the Casio charger wouldn't charge up.
